Blueberry Crumb Bars 💙

Blueberry Crumb Bars :blue_heart:

prep: 15 mins
cook: 45 mins
total: 1 hr
Servings: 15
Yield: 1 9x13-inch pan


1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shortening
1 egg
¼ teaspoon salt (Optional)
1 pinch ground cinnamon (Optional)
4 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup white sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, and baking powder. Mix in salt and cinnamon, if desired. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the shortening and egg. The dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.

Step 3

In another bowl, stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.

Step 4

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Blueberries!!! :star_struck: We must be on the same wavelength, @Amethyst, as we went wild blueberry picking here over the weekend. We had two buckets full of blueberries!

They were turned into blueberry pierogi :dumpling: (with a few kept aside to sprinkle on morning oatmeal :yum:)- but now I’m craving Blueberry Crumb Bars! :drooling_face: Perhaps we will have to head back out to the woods again soon to get some more :blue_heart:

Thanks for this awesome recipe, @Amethyst! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


OOH, blueberry pierogis! That sounds yummy too! Glad you liked the recipe!
